It’s no joke: leave Maximum Bob Lutz in a room full of journalists, bloggers, and podcasters, and you’re sure in for a treat. After all but confirming the CTS-V Sport Wagon and Coupe, a hybrid Chevrolet Impala, and dropping hints about a high-performance Buick Regal GS and a Zeta-based Caprice SS, Lutz wasn’t done just yet. In fact, when InsideLine asked him about a twin-turbo version of the Camaro, his response was a dead simple “perhaps,” hinting at the possibility of a production version of the twin-boosted 425-hp 6-cylinder Camaro GM made especially for Jay Leno for SEMA
We’re trying not to get all aflutter after all the recent Camaro news thrown our way, but it’s important to note that this is far from a confirmation. It would sure be nice to see Chevy beat Ford to the punch in offering a turboed pony car, especially given the latest rumors of the Mustang getting a much-needed update to Ford’s modern 3.7 V6 – something that would bring it up to par with GM’s 3.6L LLT.
From now on, we expect Lutz to be accompanied to all media gatherings by CEO Fritz Henderson wielding a cracking whip – you know, just in case Bob has the itch to spill some more juicy info.
